Why Failing Is A Gift | Inquiry For Overcoming Failures – Baptiste Institute

Next time you feel you’ve encountered a failure in your life, change your perspective. What if instead of failing, you simply have encountered a major lesson that you needed to learn?

We’re sharing an inquiry exercise for shifting your perspective from seeing failures to seeing gifts.

Inquiry Moment: From Failures to Gifts

When we become more attuned to our thoughts, our perception can shift. Sometimes, this means realizing that moments we saw as a mistake, failure or shortcoming, were in fact blessings in disguise. In fact, many of the world’s most successful individuals view failure itself as a gift.

Set aside a few moments of quiet introspection and grab your journal. Consider a time in your past that you once regarded as a failure and jot down your honest, initial responses to the prompts below.

Inquiry Prompt:

What is one past experience that I previously viewed as a failure, that I now see as a gift?

What about it made me perceive it negatively? What changed my view?

What is something I am struggling to accept now that might look different in the future?
